  • The best solution for my problem? (WordPress, domain, new site)

    Posted by Yoyo Glvz on December 27, 2017 at 3:36 pm

    Hello!
    I am a new webdesigner who has got her first client.

    My project with this client is to redesign his current website. The problem is that we are going to transfer the domain to my hosting service and once the transfer is complete, his website would be our of service. That’s why I’ve decided to leave the domain as it is for now.
    I would like to create the new website on WordPress while the current website is still ON… but how do I do this?

    The solutions I have so far are:

    – To create the new website in a subdomain. I have read about redirecting but if I do that, does it mean people will have to go to subdomain.com to be taken to maindomain.com? because what I want is to change the subdomain address to the main domain… (subdomain.com to maindomain.com) , so people go directly to it. Is it complicated to do with WordPress?

    – I have read about a temporary URL but it seems complicated.

    – My other solution is to buy another domain, work the new website there and then migrate it to the client’s domain. (I don’t know why this solution seems easier to me)

    – The other solution is to create a “under construction page”, that’s a cool solution but I would like to avoid it.

    I don’t know if this sound dumb for you but I am new and I’m learning in the process. I never imagined I would have my first client this quick and now I’m freaking out.

    Thank you in advance for your answers!

    Happy Holidays!

    My apologies that you did not receive an answer sooner but I just came back to this site after a years-long illness and I just saw this. Where are you at in your process today?
